Nuclear Legacy Project: Film screening, photo exhibit, and talk story

April 19, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Burns Hall / Art Gallery Cafe

The Nuclear Legacy Project at PREL aims to take a closer look into the stories of people and places affected by war and nuclear testing in the Pacific Islands. A cornerstone of this project is a brand new poem and video, "Anointed", by Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner-acclaimed poet from the Marshall Islands-and filmmaker Dan Lin. The video explores the forgotten stories of Enewetak Atoll and Bikini Atoll, the sites of 47 nuclear bomb tests done by the US after World War II, and the immense concrete dome of leaking nuclear waste on Runit Island.

Co-sponsors: Spark M. Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution, East West Center, and PREL
